• SPCA Rescuing Animals from Tassajara Fire

    The SPCA for Monterey County is working behind fire lines of the Tassajara Fire to rescue animals. As of 5:15 pm on Sunday, September 20, skilled SPCA disaster response teams have rescued three goats, four miniature donkeys, one horse, three dogs, 36 chickens, two rabbits, four cats, and one bird. We also provided care for 50 doves and 14 chickens whose owners could not return to the area but who were in a safe location. Many additional rescues are in progress.

    If you need assistance evacuating animals, contact the SPCA at 831-373-2631 between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm or at 831-646-5534 after hours. Your SPCA is here for you.

    If you are ever given orders to evacuate, take your pets with you. The SPCA strongly recommends not waiting until the last minute to evacuate with your pets or livestock. Take time to prepare your pets and family in advance. Free disaster preparedness information for people, pets, and livestock is available in English and in Spanish on our website, including a list of items that should be included in a disaster preparedness or evacuation kit and a list of local hotels and motels that accept pets should you need to evacuate.  This vital information can be found at www.spcamc.org/disaster-preparedness.html.

    Please contact us at 831-373-2631 or visit www.SPCAmc.org for more information.
